They say that actions speak louder than words, but we think it’s pretty safe to say that words are still really important. The President of the United States is a position of great importance, and what the President chooses to say resonates with the American people, not to mention the rest of the world.
That being said, some of our past Presidents have been great orators, while others speak plainly or are simply witty. They have the ability to inspire and the potential to do great things just with their words. So here’s a challenge for you. Do you think you can identify which President said certain quotes?
We’ll give you a quote and a hint, and you’ll have to figure out the rest. You’ll really need to know your presidential history to do well on this one. Think you’re up for it? Give it a try and let’s see how you do!
Chantelle took to the written word like a fish takes to water. That is to say, she found herself immersed in literature from before she was born. She’s been known to tell her friends all about how she can still remember the passages she heard her mother read to her when she was in the womb - Emily Dickinson, Jane Austen, and a bit of Hunter S. Thompson thrown in to balance it out. Whether she’s whipping up pithy one-liners to tease your brain or busy working on her second novel (the first one is available on Amazon under a pen name she refuses to disclose), Chantelle has continued to keep her feet wet with words, as it were. You’re sure to get a kick out of her giggle-worthy explanations and outrageous hints, and still come away feeling like you’ve just expanded your knowledge base.
According to the U.S. Constitution, the president is supposed to give periodic updates to Congress. Article II, Section 3 specifically states that “He shall from time to time give Congress information of the State of the Union and recommend to their consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient.” There is no date set in stone, but it usually takes place sometime in late January or early February.
For decades, the State of the Union was delivered to Congress in the form of a written report. Woodrow Wilson, however, started the trend that the President delivers the State of the Union in the form of a speech made to a joint session of Congress. It’s customary that one member of the President’s cabinet does not attend and is the “designated survivor” in the event of a disaster, as the event is attended by the President, Vice-President, Cabinet members, the Chief Justice, and Associate Justices.
